That should work for bugfix updates, but updates that don't fix bugs will never 
get any positive karma. You might argue that no update should be done if there 
are no bugs to fix, but what about bugfixes where the bugs have been reported 
upstream but not in Red Hat's Bugzilla?

I also think there should be separate choices for "still works for me" and 
"fixes my problem". "Fixes my problem" would be what you called "works for me", 
while "still works for me" would be for testers who had no problem before and 
don't see any regressions.
